With soft, elegant lines, Unna lounge chair was designed to impart a feeling of softness and comfort to a lounge chair made entirely in solid wood. Unna’s complex sculptural shape is also a testimony about the extraordinary skill of Zanat’s craftsmen in carpentry. The modernized hand-carved patterns add a special touch to the backrest of the chair. The carvings also provide a way to individualize the product.

For the exhibition Beyond Black at JUS during the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017, Monica Förster Design Studio designed a special edition of the Unna Lounge chair in black, with Sami-inspired embroidery on cushions. This embroidery has a reflective almost glowing surface which creates a contemporary expression to the project.
